How to watch Xbox + Bethesda Showcase at E3 2021?
The official E3 stated that the whole convention can be followed through their social media channels on YouTube, Twitch, Facebook, and Twitter. Additionally, Microsoft will be live-streaming the event on its official YouTube, Twitch, Facebook, and Twitter.

What to expect from the Xbox and Bethesda Showcase at E3 2021?
Microsoft is bound to have one of the best conferences at E3 2021. They have promised “new games, world premieres, and more.” The artwork they shared showcased the Master Chief. Halo Infinite is confirmed to be on the show after its delay until Fall 2021. Additionally, after the previous gameplay trailer’s critiques, it’s presumed the company will have changed how the game looks and feels- that is if they don’t want to disappoint players again. The mentioned artwork also depicts a very similar image to the one seen in the first Starfield teaser revealed back in 2018. Having Bethesda present at the event makes it plausible that Starfield will be revealed. A new Forza game might be in the spotlight and Microsoft might also shed some light on titles like Psychonauts 2, Perfect Dark, Grounded, Senua’s Saga: Hellblade 2, Fable, or the new Indiana Jones game (in-development by Bethesda).
Xbox has a bright future thanks to the 23 studios it holds. E3 2021 could be the time to reveal what are some of them working on and confirm that premise.
